Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Minimal oxidation for preserved taste and nutrients
The SKG juicer has a motor that operates at 60 RPM - it squeezes ingredients with minimal oxidation, preserving natural taste & nutrients, which would be lost by high-speed centrifugal juicers that grind, crush, and heat the ingredients due to fast-rotating blade.
Pro Can facilitate whole fruits and vegetables
The SKG juicer has a 3 x 3 inch chute that can accommodate most whole fruits and vegetables. It reduces preparation and nutritional loss, comparing to juicers with narrow chute which require cutting up the ingredients prior to juicing.
Pro High quality parts
The SKG juicer is made of high quality TRITAN food grade anti-oxidation materials (stainless steel, silicone, and PEI). It is also BPA-free, which means there are no harmful chemicals that could seep into the juice from the plastic container.
Pro The juicer will last for a long time
Due to the low power motor and the fact it doesn't heat up, it will last longer than standard centrifugal juicers.
Pro Cleaning made easy
This juicer comes with cleaning brushes for easy cleaning between juicing.
Con It does not come with dual-voltage
The juicer does not come with Worldwide voltage, therefore, if at any point you need to take it abroad - it will require voltage converter.
Con Produces noise
Comparing to other masticating juicers such as Kuvings, the SKG juicer produces more noise and vibration. It is not convenient for those who juice early in the morning or late in the evening.
Con Juicer can clog up
When juicing large amounts of ingredients, the screw can get clogged up. In this case press reverse rotation for a few seconds to unclog.
Con It cannot process ingredients that are too hard or too soft
Unfortunately, ingredients that are too hard run the risk of breaking the juicer. The same goes with soft ingredients - the juicer cannot process fruits and vegetables that are too soft, as they are difficult to be squeezed. They are more suitable for smoothies.
